let alone make beads
dragonladyw2001: I went into the studio to work on some clay things
but the turkey tryptophan (sp?) coma took over.
DTIntermart: could not get # 300 right so it went to my mud bag LOL

house...snoring away on his couch
DTIntermart: LOL
Shannon: Thanks NJ! hi everyone!
rickiebeth1: I fell asleep at teh table after everyone was through
eating and most had left the room
dragonladyw2001: I still haven't quite recovered since I had some
left overs for lunch. :)
DTIntermart: hi
dragonladyw2001: But it was good to have my parents, all my kids and
my daughter's boyfriend at the table.
DTIntermart: LOL I could go for some turkey right now :-)
marlea_anderson: Nj, my mom will be asking to see your webcam- she's
having trouble with the chat...kept getting booted before
dragonladyw2001: I'll send you some of mine. Please!
Fearless Leader: Well as some folks trickle in I'll show Doug a
trick to do a lot of small chopped beads really quickly. The Chop
Logs... Biz-Archive/Chop/Natasha/ScrapLogs
DTIntermart: NIce gahering....
DTIntermart: LOL ty DL
DTIntermart: Extra dressing please...
Fearless Leader: Have
her go to the chat on the webpage and make the webcam "always on top"
dragonladyw2001: Now for dressing there's none left. Sorry.
Fearless Leader: ok, here's the quick trick
DTIntermart: :-((
marlea_anderson: thank you
dragonladyw2001: And it was pretty good, too, if I do say so myself.
DTIntermart: LOL
dragonladyw2001: I'll try not to sprain anything patting myself on
the shoulder. :)
Rossija: LOL
DTIntermart: <---- Patts DL on shoulder
DTIntermart: :D
Phyl (phyllisinvegas) joined the room
DTIntermart: Hi Phyl
dragonladyw2001: Oh! *I'm* DL. Sorry. Bit slow on the uptake.
Phyl: Hi guys
Rossija: Hi Phyl.
marlea_anderson: lol, sounds good, I didn't have to cook much- only
made ambrosia and bread pudding, my brother handled it all this
year...i loved it
DTIntermart: LOL I type too slow so I abreviate, Sorry....
dragonladyw2001: Mom and I split the duties.
dragonladyw2001: With the mess being at my house so she didn't have
to do any cleaning to speak of.
DTIntermart: YUMM I love bread pudduing!
Janice (jlam0401) joined the room
marlea_anderson: that's great shannon. we tried to make it a
relaxing day for mom too- didn't have to lift a finger except to
eat, lol
marlea_anderson: bread pudding is SO easy to whip up DT
Fearless Leader: Ok, the trick is this, chop up the clay scraps,
then form into a long log like this, then do the Natasha cut. Cut
down the length and open like a book, cut each side down the length
and open them as a book. Then put them all back to back, and I'll
show you now.
miss_meme_30 joined the room
marlea_anderson: so do it all at once
dragonladyw2001: That's a lot easier and more efficient than the
individual beads I've been doing them.
marlea_anderson: yes, I just slice a bit as i go
DTIntermart: I wish I knew this last night LOL
dragonladyw2001: Better late than never. :)
DTIntermart: TRUE
Rossija: Just think how many you could have made....
marlea_anderson: this looks so much faster. one of those "duh, why
didn't I think of that" moments
DTIntermart: Atleast 3000 I think LOL
dragonladyw2001: And you would have counted them all?
DTIntermart: it is very hard to make a single natasha bead that is 2-
3 MM
DTIntermart: Sure I always count after i finish LOL gives me a
number to beat next time..
DTIntermart: I s that a mini roling pin NJ?
Fearless Leader: Yes it is Doug, now you can cut the beads from this
dragonladyw2001: I always have trouble smoothing the seams on my
Natashas. No matter what I do, it always seems to show.
marlea_anderson: so much more efficient
DTIntermart: you have to press them together hard...
dragonladyw2001: And then squish them back into shape?
DTIntermart: Press them while you shape them...
Fearless Leader: Then using the Turkey Skewer we can form the holes
dragonladyw2001: I thought I was. Maybe I was being too gentle with
DTIntermart: i WACK MINE between 2 tiles to shap & join thee parts..
sharonvintn joined the room
marlea_anderson: hello sharon
Fearless Leader: Then after I put this hole in the bead and pinch
the ends I transfer it to the bamboo skewer for curing.
sharonvintn: Hi
DTIntermart: you probly are, I found i had to presss fairly hard to
join the segments.,,,
sharonvintn: Just packing up for a craft show
DTIntermart: HI
dragonladyw2001: I'll have to give that a try. My kids already think
I've lost it when I'm working with clay. This will just confirm
it. "What are you doing now, Mom?" "Just tile whacking."
sharonvintn: Thought I'd say Hi
marlea_anderson: good luck with the show!
dragonladyw2001: Hi back to you. Good luck with your show.
marlea_anderson: lmao DL
Shannon: NJ can we get a close up for the pic? :-)
DTIntermart: Where is the show?
sharonvintn: Thanks for the luck, will need it!!
dragonladyw2001: I like the football shaped Natashas better than the
rectangular ones.
marlea_anderson: i think i do too
DTIntermart: They have gentler lines....
dragonladyw2001: Yes.
DTIntermart: Round ones are nice too....
Shannon: thanks NJ!

dragonladyw2001: Hmmm, now I'm inspired to go do something with the
pile of scraps that have accumulated from other things.

log, when you make them round they will be the same time

get half sized ones and don't have to worry about measuring
